Blue Surprise

Blue Surprise

A dwarf columnar blue Port Orford Cedar.  The plant is dense, with upright branches, and the foliage is juvenile and POWDER BLUE.  An interesting characteristic is that the plant grows in a spiraled fashion.  Found as a seedling by Anthony P.J. de Beer in Tilburg, Holland. Looks stunning when planted with golden foliage plants. Also, because of its narrow, spire shape, it will offer dramatic contrast to mounding shaped plants in the landscape. This tree requires very sharp drainage, so we recommend planting higher than grade, like a raised bed with lots of barky organic amendments and gravel. We highly recommend against using any Weedmat type products for this tree. ALSO NOTE: Automatic watering systems will kill this tree if set to go on too often. Soggy roots will create the optimum conditions for root rot, so again, good drainage, raised bed planting, with watering sparingly is highly recommended.
